The primary location for my contacts currently is with my company's Exchange server. I've sync'd with this since I got my first iPhone 3G in 2008. This is my last week with this company and I need to start using my contacts elsewhere.
I've exported a copy of my contacts using the OS X Addresses app as a backup.
Options that I can think of are:
- Starting to use my iCloud account (which I've never done before)
- Transfer to my gmail account -- but that'd get mixed in with a huge mess of less useful contacts
- Simply copy to use locally without an external syn. Is this possible? easy?
Are there other strategies that I should consider?
